The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Matthew 16:21-23 (Even a disciple as devoted as Peter can be tempted to forget God’s purposes in pursuit of his own. How much more we should be on guard against such temptation!)
1 Peter 1:14-16; 4:1-2 (These words were written by the same Peter referenced above. Thus, we should listen all the more carefully to his voice of experience.)
